Class D Amplifier Circuitry

Class D Circuitry

Summary:
Subwoofer-optimized, Class D amplifier circuit delivers high efficiency without sacrificing low-frequency fidelity.

Detailed Information:
The design of our Class D subwoofer amplifier circuits places a high emphasis on damping of the driven load and low-frequency control. Exceptional efficiency is also achieved, which allows the amplifier to be physically compact and also draws far less current from a vehicle’s electrical system during high-power operation.
